Fly Over States


...On the plains of OklahomaWith a windshield sunset in your eyes
Like a water-color painted sky
You'll think heaven's doors have opened
You'll understand why God made those fly over states
...

The song is called "Fly Over States" and it is the new one out from Jason Aldeen. When it comes on the radio, it has me thinking of the beauty my family experiences each and every time we make the seventeen hour trip cross country to visit my parents. 




CAS-ual Friday's newest challenge is to create a clean and simple card inspired by your favorite song. The sponsor is Melanie Muenchinger, and you can read more her and the prize, as well as about challenge rules and details. Check out the inspiration from The Girl Fridays too over on the Blog! Don't forget about the current call for designers as well!


Supplies:
Cardstock: (Kraft) PTI
Patterned Paper: (Campfire Collection) October Afternoon, Grid Paper

Stamps: (Flying By) Lawn Fawn
Ink: (Rich Cocoa) Memento
